New York: Thomas Selzer, 1921. First Edition. Octavo. Item #028718
285 pages. The remarkable insights of a young girl who wrote about her feelings and life at ages 11 to 14 1/2. Freud found this a remarkable insight as he wrote the translators noting to them: "Above all, we are shown how the mystery of the sexual life first presses itself vaguely on the attention, and then takes entire possession of the growing intelligence, so that the child suffers under the load of secret knowledge but gradually becomes enabled to shoulder the burden. Of all these things we have a description at once so charming, so serious, and so artless, that it cannot fail to be of supreme interest to educationists and psychologist." Bound in tan linen over green paper covered boards, paper spine label to spine lettered in black, corners worn, some chipping and toning to spine and spine ends, light wear to label, previous owner's name on title page. A very good copy.
